There's a use for everything...
Do you have a place to put your towel when you take a nice, long bath? I do not. My towel comes out of the linen closet and sits gracefully folded in the floor while I take a bath. The ledge of the bathtub is not big enough to hold it. I've tried. The towel slides right into the water.
So there you have it! My brilliant idea for the ugliest stool EVER. Of course, it wouldn't make it into my bathroom with out a quick little makeover...
I started by sanding off the ugliness (aka flowers), or at least enough of them to not show through when I put a light coat or two of paint on it.
Next I put two coats of weathered cream colored paint on it. After that dried, I got the sanding block back out and distressed the edges. This thing was old and had cracked corners and edges already, so no chance of it looking new. I might as well go with the antique look.
